Load WordProcessing document with options

GroupDocs.Conversion provides WordProcessingLoadOptions to give you control over how source WordProcessing document will be processed. The following options could be set: 

  • setFormat - the document type is auto detected during load, however you can specify explicitly the type of the source WordProcessing document. Available options are: Doc, Docm, Docx, Dot, Dotm, Dotx, Rtf, Odt, Ott, Mobi, Txt
  • setAutoFontSubstitution - if false, GroupDocs.Conversion uses the DefaultFont for the substitution of missing fonts. If true, GroupDocs.Conversion evaluates all the related fields in FontInfo (Panose, Sig etc) for the missing font and finds the closest match among the available font sources. 
    Note: that font substitution mechanism will override the DefaultFont in cases when FontInfo for the missing font is available in the document
  • setDefaultFont - default font. The following font will be used if a document font is missing
  • setFontSubstitutes - substitute specific fonts from the source document
  • setPassword -  password to unlock protected document
  • setHideWordTrackedChanges - specifies that tracked changes should not included in converted document
  • setHideComments - specifies that comments from source document must be hidden during conversion
